Canada Booth 2017: Ahead by a Century

The 2017 Canada Booth came out of a bunch of bags and boxes in record time!  We must be getting good at this… 30 minutes to set up the black curtain that’s been known to take much, much longer to hang.  Canadian heroes and superheroes appeared on the walls and incredibly  by 2:30pm we were done.  Ahead by a century, it seemed.

Here are some fun pics of the installation.  Thank you to Gary, Denise and Caroline for setting up and many thanks to the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta for generously supporting this cultural endeavour.

Announcing the Canadian Network of North Carolina

There are some big changes coming to our group this fall.  CanSouth will officially be merging with the Canadian Business Association of North Carolina (CBA-NC) and forming a new group to comprehensively serve Canadians in the area. The new group will have a social presence, host the Canada Booth at the International Festival, provide a forum to ask questions and obtain information on a variety of services, and focus on professional networking activities.

The new group will be called the Canadian Network of North Carolina.

We are of course going to need your help to make this merger successful. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing additional information and asking for your feedback on several things.

  • Be on the lookout for information about our updated Facebook page, website and  email address.
  • Stay tuned for an invitation to our first Canadian Network NC social event, an informal meeting to get to know new members, ask questions and provide input on the new group.
  • Vote on the new group logo! We’ll be sending out a survey to get your input on our new look.
  • Weigh in on additional services we can offer and how best to serve you.

So please keep an eye on your emails for additional communications and don’t miss the opportunity to share your feedback.
